I came from work today and booted up the PC (still breadboarding / barebone), with the new CMOS battery installed, new PSU, but without the on board extended USB Port.

Boot up perfectly.

My observation revealed there's no abnormal electrical sound coming out from the new PSU.

Planning to put up everything into the chassis. Pls advice me before I proceed whether I should wrap up or do some more tests?

Sounds good so far.

If not already done so,
Connect up the front panel cabling, > test. If OK,
Connect up extended USB Port, . test, if OK
Run

Memtest86+ Read the technical information from this page first, >

http://www.memtest86.com/#details

then go to this page to download the l

LATEST VERSION : 4.20

. >

http://www.memtest.org/




I advise to run the full test at least 3 times.




If OK, I ;think time to install in the case, ensure that the correct I/O shield is used and the Motherboard stand offs installed on the Mobo back plate match exactly the screw holes in the Mobo, NO extra ones.



Good luck.

Connect up extended USB Port, . test, -----> OK :thumbsup:
Run Memtest86+ (twice full test on all ports)--------> OK :thumbsup:

Today's plan :-

Connect front panel.. if OK want to assemble in the case.
p/s: the stand offs, can I only install 4 stand offs despite having so much holes for stand offs?

Hello again TokBomoh

It is vital that you have a stand-off wherever there is the need for the MB to be held in place by a screw, this not only helps to ground the MB it also prevents the MB from flexing when it gets hot + they also support the MB when pressure is applied whilst fitting the CPU cooler, adding memory sticks and add on cards and so on, see the .jpeg below for where stand offs and screws need to be used, what type of stand off are you using?

Your board, First marked hole is slightly elongated so you can adjust the board to match the other holes. NOT, no extra standoffs under the board, six only.
